At the Oct 15 #Leesburg town council meeting, the council extended the service area for Cartwheel Carts to go to the Safeway and Doner Bistro parking lots. This will allow the carts to go from downtown King Street to Catoctin Circle. The carts cannot go on Catoctin Circle but to it.

At the Board of Supervisors meeting last night they voted to initiate the Boundary Line Adjustment between the county and the town of Leesburg. This means that the commercial property called Compass Creek will become part of the town of Leesburg. This is a process that will take more discussions but could allow the town to add this commercial area by next year.

At our next Leesburg Town Council meeting on Oct 21, the council will be discussing: 1) Emergency Communications Center. This will be a very important discussion. Do we join the county dispatch system or do we keep it in house at a very large cost?

2) North Street Traffic Patterns Related to the Pennington Parking Garage.

3) East Market Street Traffic Congestion at Plaza Street and Fort Evans Road

On the Oct 22, Town Council meeting we will be voting on: the Emergency Communications Center. Setting Policy Direction for the Town of Leesburg Emergency Communications Center and Authorizing the Town Manager to Immediately Proceed with Upgrading the Call Handling Equipment at the Leesburg Police Station with the Appropriation from the Fiscal Year 2019 Undesignated Fund Balance.

After that discussion and vote the council will be holding public hearings on:
Wee Garden Daycare. Approving Special Exception TLSE-2019-0003, Wee Garden Daycare to allow a Family Day Home of up to 12 Children within the River Pointe Neighborhood Located at 1319 Tenaya Way

Noise Ordinance changes. The staff is recommending changing the time for amplified music to go to 10:00pm from the present requirement of 8:00pm. This is a highly charged topic and many people will be in attendance at this meeting.

  • The Loudoun Museum Board of Trustees presented a hopeful future to Leesburg Town Council Monday night, earning council’s confidence to renew the downtown building’s lease. Council hosted a roundtable work session to discuss how the town could work with the museum once it reopens. “You can get to a point where a museum is good enough, and I think that Loudoun County wisely, in conjunction with the town, decided that what was good enough is not good enough anymore,” said … read more

  • The long walk to downtown Leesburg from public parking lots could become a quick golf cart ride. Leesburg Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to initiate a staff study about how and where the town might allow golf carts on public streets. The move was inspired when a transportation business, Cartwheels, asked if it could start ferrying visitors downtown from the far-flung Liberty and Pennington lots. According to Mayor Kelly Burk, who saw some of the business’s proposal, the golf carts would be … read more
